If the Word of God was a cupcake, would we indulge ourselves more often? Would we make the time no matter how busy we are, at least once a day, to satiate our appetite? Would we think about it day and night, knowing it was so close, within arms reach, until we just had to have it? Would we gobble it down, or slowly engage in its luscious goodness? Would we go back for seconds, or thirds because its flavor was just too good to resist?
“My people are being destroyed because they don’t know Me…” Hosea 4:6 (NLT 2007).
The Word of God is like a smorgasbord of spiritual morsels waiting to be devoured by anyone looking to sweeten some part of their life. There is something to be found in it that will delight, satisfy, and replenish every hungry soul. You cannot walk away from it without finding just the right words for you at the very moment you need them. And, like any good cupcake, the Word is always fresh to eyes willing to see it, and moist on any tongue willing to speak it.
And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Let us approach our Eternal Creator and Its Word like children, wide-eyed, awed, and excited about all the possibilities before us.
“…God is Love.” (1 John 4:8) That’s the icing on the Cupcake of Life. And when I sit down to enjoy a cupcake I always begin with the icing.
Until next time, may happy days abound!
